I have a similar problem:

I bought a fuel tank and provided it to Audi to replace in my car. The dealer told me that the bracket that holds the fuel pump in place was broken and thus the whole fuel tank useless. This seemed like a way for them to get me to buy their tank but I am not sure. I looked into it a bit by asking a repair house if the bracket is replaceable and he said yes. Is this the case?

If your talking about the lock ring on the tank there is a special tool but a brass chisel and hammer can be used to turn the ring until its loose enough to unscrew by hand. if this is about removing the pump from the bottom of the tank then there is a special tool for that also but it can be removed by hand you just have to twist it counter-clockwise. and it will be not be easy to turn but i have done it just have a rubber glove on to pad your hand or its going to hurt.

you can do it by loosening the fuel tank straps and letting the tank down a bit. Dont have to completely remove the tank, but you do have to move it.

I need to change a petrol pump on A4 1996 model can someone guide me on how to do this

You will need to disconnect negative battery cable. Then jack up rear of car. Disconnect wires to tank, disconnect filler tube, disconnect return hoses, then disconnect support straps to tank.
Then support tank with a jack and mabey a helper. Remove mounting bolts holding tank up. Lower gas tank and pull it out. Then with a BRASS and only a BRASS punch and a hammer, knock the ring on top of tank counter-clockwise to until it is loose and you can remove it. Then carefully pull out the sending unit and pump and disconnect the two of them.

On my 1999 Audi A4 Quattro the fuel gage is dropping and low fuel light comes on even though my gas tank is full.

The float is defective. It is of course internal and usually part of the fuel pump unit. You can see if it can be repalced on it's own, but I doubt it. Try seeing if you can get a used one. I have no knowledge of problems with the Audi fuel pumps, witch means they are pretty reliable, so you can usually trust a used one.

Replace fuel pump audi a4 quattro 1996

The locking ring for the fuel pump can be released and reinstalled using two large combination spanners (wrenches) with the open end against the locking ring tabs and the spanners held in against each other to form and 'X'. Push/pull on the ends to remove or install the locking ring.


Be sure to perform this operation in a well ventilated area with all windows down and the battery negative cable disconnected.

More than likely the fuel pump. This may sound stupid but take something and give your gas tank a bit of a thump. What year is the car?
